Well, I just Bought a 2007 SE Springer in Red/Copper----so I guess I like them!! A whole lot!
I have a 1997 Her Springer with 40,000 on it no complaints  --- I'll be keeping it too
I was just waiting for something that spoke to me if you know what I mean.
110 / 6 speed / custom Paint / wheels / etc did the trick
I'll let you fellows know how it works after I have a few miles on it.
Paid MSRP from the local dealer in Akron

Congrats on the purchase, I think that bike is stunning! Lets see some pics [smiley=worthless.gif]

And welcome to the site [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]

We had the opportunity to see the red springer at the N. Richmond shop this past weekend.  Wow - that is one gorgeous looking bike.  They painted the frame and the springer front end.  I always loved the springer front end all in chrome, but painted looks pretty good too.  I have never ridden a bike like this, but I have never ridden a lot of bikes period, so even though I am not inclined to trade my SEEG for another bike, I admire this one and am so happy for those that will add this pony to the stables.   [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]

Personally I think it ROCKS ! !

The bikes look BEST in person of course....Paint this year is fairly subtle with the exception of GOLD, which might be next.......

There has never been any official Harley statement, or even a hint from Harley that the Springer will be discontinued.  The company did not include the classic springer in their '07 line-up, but did include it in the CVO line — simple as that.  All else is pure speculation.

As to the springer front end not handling well, I have to disagree.  Other than the '89 and '07 Springers that I currently own, I ride a Ducati 900FE, and frequently borrow my wife's Ducati Monster 750. My last Harley was a Dyna. I also ride dirtbikes, primarily Honda. What I am saying, is that I am no stranger to the telescopic fork or to performance style riding. The Springer front end handles quite nicely. I think it actually corners better than my '01 Dyna.  I guess everything is subjective, and based on how an individual feels the feedback from the bike and the road.

Now I could go on about the handling of the Electraglide...but once again, that would be highly subjective, and incidentally, would not be a positive review. As a result, I do not own an Electraglide, and likewise, the negative posters on the Springer don't seem to own that model either! ;)
